NYPD baseball team's gear stolen in Texas
Squad was forced to cancel a tournament championship game after someone made off with its jerseys, gloves and bats
NEW YORK — Most thieves would balk at stealing on the NYPD baseball team, but the squad has been forced to cancel a tournament championship game after someone made off with its jerseys, gloves and bats.
The New York Post reports the team comprised of New York City police officers was at a tournament in Texas when about $15,000 worth of gear and equipment was stolen from a team minivan.
Team manager Jose Vasquez tells the Post the police officers spent the morning filling out police reports instead of taking the field.
The self-funded team, New York's Finest Baseball Club, was scheduled to play the Dallas Fire Department.
